A bullseye is commonly associated with target practice, and as such, the bullseye itself is the inert, nonliving target. Crosshairs, on the other hand, represent the mechanism by which a target is acquired and killedIt is also an image that resonates in popular culture through countless repetitions, in films and television shows, of the assassin’s POV shotThat the intent was to evoke something like a bullseye (only way tougher), and not the spectre of assassination, is an obvious, yet moot, pointOnce that reasonable objection was raised, the image should have been abandoned.
“你必须疯狂地从字面上理解这种修辞“， 有人说“究竟“， 我说。
Was the message of Palin’s gunsight crosshairs intended to be taken literally? No你知道，我知道，因为你和我都是理智的但不是每个人都理智。

女士Giffords’ district office is the same that had been vandalized — a window broken, perhaps with a pellet gun, the police said — late last March, after the national health care bill passed with support from MsGiffords, who was known as “Gabby” to her constituents.
After that, during her re-election campaign, protesters gathered on most Saturdays on the same corner shouting and holding signs that said things like “Gabby, You’re Gone.”
“On a typical Saturday this corner is filled with Tea Party protesters,” said Brenda Tyler, who was with her husband, Lyndon“I’ve seen signs saying things like ‘It’s time to reload’ and ‘One way or another, you’re gone.’” A real estate agency in the neighborhood had a sign out front that said “Goodbye Gabby” and showed the silhouette of a witch on a broom,” she said星期六它被取消了。
在任何情况下，使用瞄准镜十字准线代表政治对手都是病态的但是，在抗议者持有“以这种或那种方式，你已经离开”的迹象的情况下 - 内华达州的共和党参议员候选人公开谈论“第二修正案补救措施” - 这是危险的我们有些人一直都看到这一点 -悲惨的是，加布里埃尔吉福兹本人由于昨天的无谓，令人心碎的暴力，现在还有更多人看到它。
It’s not @SarahPalinUSA’s fault a violent undiagnosed schizophrenic shot those people, but I’m super-glad I didn’t put up a map like that.
